"Pictures for Charis"

Kelli Connell, 2017 Imagemaker Award Winner

Thursday, March 09 - 2:00PM to 2:45PM
Orange AB

Using Edward Weston and Charis Wilson's "California and the West" and Charis's autobiography "Through Another Lens: My Life with Edward Weston" as a guide, my project takes a closer look at photographer-to-sitter relationships as my partner, Betsy, and I travel to the diverse southwestern locales where Charis and Edward made work together. The resulting project, Pictures for Charis, includes photographs and writing that serve as both an homage to Charis Wilson and Edward Weston, and as a backdrop to raise new questions and dialogues about the spousal relationships of photographers and models in the 21st century.
